Employee of Preferred Home Health Care Selected as Hispanic Leader Making a Difference in New Jersey

Posted on September 6, 2018 By

Kimberly Lamberty-Torres, Linwood, client services coordinator for Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services (PHHC), Galloway office, was selected as one of the “Hispanic Leaders Who Are Making a Difference in New Jersey.” The South Jersey Journal will recognize Lamberty-Torres, who has worked for Preferred for six years, with a profile about her contributions.

Lamberty-Torres volunteered in the campaign “Puerto Rico Strong.” After she arrived in Puerto Rico on October 6, 2017, the campaign raised more than $40,000 and was instrumental in shipping to Puerto Rico three containers of supplies, food, tarps, water, and many other items.

After the trip to Puerto Rico, Lamberty-Torres co-founded Latinos En Marcha, an active advocacy group that participated in the Unity March for Puerto Rico on November 19, 2017.

Lamberty-Torres said, “We had the largest contingent representing the state of Pennsylvania.”

Lamberty-Torres, Latinos En Marcha, and the Free Library of Philadelphia held a FEMA clinic for several weeks and assisted more than 100 evacuee families with FEMA applications and appeals. The group participated in a Woman’s March this past January to continue to highlight the plight of Puerto Rico and its people.

On a more local level, Lamberty-Torres and Damaris Esquea, Pleasantville, a certified home health aide for PHHC, recently made sure that Rosaline Glover, Pleasantville, a client of theirs, received a replacement motorized wheelchair through the One Wish program of PHHC when they found out that Glover couldn’t leave her home because her wheelchair was broken.

Two Eagle Ridge Junior League Golfers Make the All Star Team

Posted on September 4, 2018 By

Two Eagle Ridge Golf Club Junior League players have made the PGA Junior League Golf All Star Team. Kevin Ostrander, age 10, Pt. Pleasant, and Alexandra Schaul, age 13, Howell, whose team won two rounds of playoffs, will now represent New Jersey for the Regional Championship at LedgeRock Golf Club in Pennsylvania on September 15 and 16, 2018.

Ostrander and Schaul will be joining other All Star golf players at LedgeRock as Team NJ, hoping to advance to the national competition in Arizona this November.

Rylee Plitz, Toms River, head golf professional at Eagle Ridge Golf Club, 2 Augusta Drive, Lakewood, N.J., said, “Congratulations to our New Jersey PGA Jr. League Section Champions, League 8! It was an awesome match that came down to a playoff hole and then a chip-off to finally decide the winner.”

Registration for the PGA Junior League program at Eagle Ridge opens in February. The program runs throughout May and June. Plitz said that this year enough golfers, ages 8 – 13, signed up to form two teams. Out of those teams, Ostrander and Schaul became All Stars.

The PGA Jr. League began in 2011 and now has more than 42,000 youth participants. The program, accessible to all interested kids, is designed to be recreational and developmental, focusing on fun, recreation, good health, and sportsmanship. It highlights team play, with a two-person scramble format, versus individual competition and serves as a feeder system to transition youth golfers to existing junior golf programs.

Harbor School Students Create Their Own World Cup Day

Posted on August 31, 2018 By

The World Cup wasn’t only happening in Russia this summer! Students in the Harbor School, a private special education school for students with disabilities, 240 Broad Street, Eatontown, N.J., participated in their own World Cup Day, linking world events with physical activities in their school.

Jenn Bogin, the adaptive physical education (APE) and health teacher at Harbor School and the staff planned the World Cup event, with each class responsible for selecting a country to represent and making that country’s flag.

Students learned fun facts about the country their class had chosen, including France, Croatia, Peru, Great Britain, Lichtenstein, USA, Kosovo, Portugal, Mexico, and Italy.

World Cup Day at the Harbor School included 12 different soccer and agility stations in the gym that focused on fine and gross motor skills, modified so students could participate to their fullest ability. Some of the stations included soccer bowling, dribbling, box drill, celebration (jumping on a trampoline with pom poms), ladder drills, throwing skills, shooting on goal, circle passing, and around-the-world on a scooter, among others.

World Cup Day began in the morning with a parade in the gym, during which each class/country was recognized while their national anthem played. In the afternoon, a bracket tournament style World Cup game took place– one for the elementary students and one for the high school.  One class in the elementary and one in the high school clenched the World Cup trophies made by Ms. Jenn, who used a cup, ball, and soccer topper spray-painted gold.

Other events included a cookie station set up by Nancy Congo and her class to decorate cookies with healthy treats. Other Harbor School classes incorporated foods from chosen countries.  The PTA generously provided t-shirts for this special event.
